Seek Him FIRST

“The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”  (Haggai 2:9)

THE END OF A THING IS GREATER!  This is a principle of God that cannot be thwarted for He is the God of increase, the God of progression, the God Who takes us from faith to faith, from strength to strength, from glory to glory. 

This world cannot dictate to us how the end will be, unless we allow it to.  It does not matter where we are at at the moment.  We do not despise small beginnings.   We are not to be affected much with what is going on around us.  Instead, we choose to be influenced and be convinced that our God has greater plans for us.  We choose to believe and have faith for a greater tomorrow because the One Who holds and directs us busies Himself with our every step.  We choose to soar higher than the storms of life as we are called to be eagles fueled by the grace of God, the Wind underneath our wings.

Your Prayer, Your Seed

“Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer.” (Daniel 10:12 NLT)

We all approach the throne of God in prayer and many of those that we prayed for have not come to fruition yet.  The challenge is in the waiting when we see that nothing is changing.  It may seem a permanent obstacle, but the good news is that our HOPE is in the One Who never disappoints.  We need to shift our focus from the bigness of our problem that is temporary to the bigness of our God Who is eternal.  We choose to walk by faith and not by sight.  We go by what the Lord our God promised us in His Word.  We need to be fully persuaded that the very moment we made known our requests to God, He heard our cry and surely His answers are on the way.  So, fear not, little flock.   We rest in His everlasting love and faithfulness.

Identify With Christ

The life of a Christian is NEVER independent of Jesus Christ. It is being constantly and consistently connected with Him, identifying with Him every step of the way. It is being self sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].” (Philippians 4:13 AMPC)

Fear Not!

God’s Kingdom runs in the currency of faith that knows no bounds.

Faith is a by-product of meditating on what God’s word says.  “Faith comes by hearing and hearing through the Word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17 ESV) Fear is a by-product of meditating on the natural. 

Faith is a by-product of seeing our limitless God Who is with us, in us and for us.  It sees beyond the obvious.  Fear is a by-product of seeing the limitations around us. 

Faith looks at God and believes in Him.  Fear looks at the circumstances and believes in it. 

The choice is ours.   What are we meditating on?  What are we seeing?  What are we believing? What are we feeding ourselves with?

The Lord Is Willing

“And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean. Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” (Matthew 8:2-3 NKJV)

Majority of us believe that God is able to heal us.  But, many among us still struggle and are in deep doubt if He is willing.  This may be so because of our own experiences and that of others.  We have seen people around us who called upon Him for healing and were healed, yet some were not.  If this is what we are seeing, do we go by faith, seeking to see beyond the obvious? Or do we choose to go by sight?

Set The Tenor Of Your Day

Many of us think that to be updated with everything with what’s going on around us is the first thing that we should do as soon as we wake up. I am not saying we shouldn’t be currently informed. What I’m saying is that we should know our priorities and what is most beneficial to us. His Word says, “All things are legitimate [permissible—and we are free to do anything we please], but not all things are helpful (expedient, profitable, and wholesome). All things are legitimate, but not all things are constructive [to character] and edifying [to spiritual life].” (1 Corinthians 10:23 AMPC)

It’s A New Day

Sometimes the things that were not good nor beneficial that happened in the past surprisingly pop up. It may be in our thoughts or even in our dreams. But, one thing that we get to be thankful for is the power of the Blood of Jesus that washed us, cleansed us and made us as white as snow. His Blood made the way for us to be NEW CREATIONS in Christ.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV)

Connectedness

“Never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.” (Matthew 28:20 TPT)

When God gives us a promise, He is more than willing and able to fulfill it.  More so, He is faithful to do it and make it good.  That’s a definite!   He is not just more than willing and able to do it, but He is more than willing and able to do it FOR YOU and FOR ME.  This intimate truth is a PLUS when we are fully persuaded in our hearts.
